for example, if I go to espn3.com and try to watch any of the games, it pops up in another window, then there's a flash of what it's showing and then it goes black. like it's missing from the applet? whenever i go to youtube, it says sorry error occurred, please try again later. anyone else having this issue?

espn3.com doesn't work good with chromium and also with firefox
it doesn't work using the user-agent switcher to set user agent as ie explorer

I sent to mozilla this issue but might be this is a poor or complaint w3c site....
